right back here tomorrow. ♪ ♪ lou: good evening, everybody. thank you for being with us. washington has become an end to the logical wonderland where the obama administration seems to be more obsessed with semantics and sentence construction than in the capture or killing of terrorists. washington taking pettiness and irrelevancies to new heights while dismissing any sense of proportion when it comes to a radical islamists and the war and terror of. and for all of that, this was a red letter day. president obama's mantra that al qaeda is on the run proved wrong yet again. you're looking at pictures of yemen where government officials uncovered a al qaeda plot to capture oil and gas facilities to fire on foreign embassies, the key port. news of the plot breaking as the united states is stepping up its drone attacks there, killing at least 78 terrorists in the southern part of the country. and the broader plot that led to the closings of 19 embassies and facilities in 16 countries still acted tonight was no indication that the threats have in any way diminished. here is state department s
republican leaders in washington with its ultimate tum. those worried leaders do as they're told to kill obama care even if that means shutting down the federal government or else. fueling this is the right-wing base of the country that now commands the fears of republican congressmen far more than anything the weak john boehner can say or do or pretend to do or hope to do. here is a town hall meeting held by robert pettinger. pay close attention to who's calling the attention here. does this guy look anything like john boehner? even a little? >> real quick, easy question. this is what the tea party wants to know. will you vote with mike lee to defund obama care? yes or no? >> a thoughtful answer? >> i want yes or no. >> no. >> if any republican votes against it, does not get funded. that's a fact. >> it has to be signed by the president of the united states. >> will you make a stand -- >> shut down the government. >> do you think harry reid is going to pass that in the senate? >> it doesn't matter. >> we need to show the american people we stand for conservative values. >> i'm joined by
will meet with their russian counterparts in washington on friday. >> brown: was the president right to cancel the meeting? and where does this leave u.s.- russian relations? stephen sestanovich teaches international diplomacy at columbia university. he served in the state department during the reagan and clinton administrations. dimitri simes is president of the center for the national interest. he just returned from a trip to russia where he met with senior russian officials. welcome to both of you. stephen sestanovich was it the snowden asylum in the end that led to this and do you think it was the right move. >> i think it was a key factor in the decision but it wasn't the most important issue. what it did was force the administration to take careful stock of where the relationship stood. what's going on they had to ask, and is this meeting going to be a loser. i think they were right to conclude it was going to be a loser. that it was going to be a waste of time, at best, and at worst. >> brown: you told one of our producers earlier today you think president obama mishandled th
to the practical. and made i just been in washington too long but i see that there are several i think big hurdles in taking a proposal like this and putting it in front of a congressional, in front of congress and moving it forward. the first one i was is really balancing this question of the basic health plans with controlling costs. your plan it seems by reading it starts with the idea of we are going to be fun with the basic health plan is. i think it really underestimates the challenge of what that would look like. if you are too prescriptive and say, here's what the design of a basic plan will become you will find resistance across the board. on all sorts of groups, but if you leave it to congress to decide and panels, et cetera, you will continue to be kind of spinning in circles as well as there are differing opinions, edit and people just threw up their hands. so i think that's one major challenge in designing with a basic health plan would be. and then second is the subsidy part of it, and looking at then how do you interlock the subsidy that is a very complicated subsidy in some respect
,al sharia. right now no one has been arrested. steve centanni's live in washington on this top story. the charges are sealed, but what do we know about them? >> reporter: very little is known at this point. the indictment has been issues, we don't know exactly what the charges are, we also don't know exactly who is being named, though we have some idea. but this is the first criminal indictment in the aftermath of the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, an attack, as you mentioned, that left four americans dead. a u.s. official confirmed the indictment while the justice department, on the record, is only saying that the investigation is ongoing and remains a top priority. now, some say it hadn't been a top priority, and the indictments don't go far enough. >> the real question is, is the government committed, is president obama committed to capture and kill these people? at this point almost 11 months afterwards, it doesn't appear so. >> reporter: now, we don't know if the three suspects originally identified by the fbi are, indeed, among the ones indicted. in an interview cond
